Application process

Here are the stages you can expect from our recruitment process.


Apply online

You can search for vacancies across UCL and apply online through the UCL jobsite. Our portal allows you save and return to your application, and once you submit your application you will receive an email acknowledgement.

Top tip: Read the full Job Description and Person Specification and make sure your application explains how your experience matches this. 


How we shortlist candidates

Your application will be reviewed against the criteria outlined in the Person Specification by a UCL selection panel; and applicants who best match the criteria will be shortlisted for interview. Following the selection panel's shortlisting process you will receive notification on the outcome of your application.


Your interview

If you’re shortlisted you'll be invited to attend an interview with a UCL selection panel. This may include undertaking any selection tests – for example giving a presentation.

You'll also be asked to bring proof of your right to work in UK and any other relevant documents (e.g. qualification certificates).

Following the interview you will receive notification on the outcome of your interview and receive feedback on your interview.


A job offer

If you have been successful, you will receive an email with your conditional offer of employment. Once this is accepted you can agree your start date.

We'll carry out the pre-employment screening (including reference and other checks such as DBS if applicable). Once the checks have been completed we will issue your contract and onboarding paperwork, these should be returned before your start date.
